We visited the Joshua Park entered from I10 and exited in downtown Joshua Tree, California. If you turn left and proceed to Yucca Valley you will find every chain restaurant in America. If, however, you turn right you will see a white building with Joshua Tree Saloon across the top. Here is where you want to eat. The most outstanding... More

Joshua Tree Saloon was recommended by a friend. My husband, daughter and myself went there around 3:pm on President's Day. We walked in and it was crowded. It was a "find your own table," situation. We found a table that had not been cleared off before we sat down. We waited 30 minutes for our order to be taken. It... More

I'll start with the good. The burgers were amazing. That's about it. We sat at tel he bar to assuming we'd get good attention. The one male bar tender took his time getting to us. Checking his cell phone near the register. When we got our drinks, my wife's bloody Mary didn't look like the ones we saw people getting... More

I could make better ribs when I was a freshman in high school. Atmosphere is awesome, good beers on tap, good hangout spot. Only have been once and wouldn't recommend but hey it could have been a bad day too

Very much a local watering hole/sports bar/restaurant. Quite crowded, several TV screens showing sporting events, simple menu, burger and fries, but very tasty, good beer and fast service with a smile..

We live in JT and the Saloon used to be hit or miss for a few years. It is much improved! They have worked on improving their ingredients and menu selections. And best of all, their meat is cooked correctly! Whether you order it rare, well done or something in between, they finally have it right! The staff seems to... More

Good local spot for an easy solid dinner, especially nearby after a day of hiking at the park. A few pool tables and kareoke make it a fun place to hang out for a beer, as well. Friendly staff.

Dropped into the JT Saloon on the Monday night after the Super Bowl. That was cool, because they were showing it again on some TV's there and it was fun to watch with the outcome known. Sorry, started off topic. The menu was varied and tempting. Went for the BLT on sourdough and it was superb. Very enhanced, according to... More
